STAMFORD, CT – January 7, 2021 – JBL is introducing its latest addition to its portfolio, the JBL Tour Series, designed for business professionals who are looking for headphones with advanced technology, smart features and a sleek design. The series includes two headphone models, the JBL Tour ONE over-ear noise cancelling headphones and JBL Tour Pro+ true wireless in-ear headphones. In addition to Adaptive Noise Cancellation, both models come equipped with JBL Pro Sound, Adaptive Ambient Aware and TalkThru technology. Additionally users can access hands-free voice assistant capabilities by Google and Amazon, using voice commands or with press and hold on the earcup for a highly personalized user experience.

 

The JBL Tour ONE offers True Adaptive Noise Cancellation technology, which instantly monitors environmental sound and adapts to the perfect level of noise cancellation for the user’s environment, eliminating distractions in real time. SilentNow also gives users the ability to simply touch the dedicated button to activate noise cancellation mode without activating Bluetooth, for complete isolation from outside noise.

“The Tour Series is dedicated to consumers looking for the best in noise cancelling technology, elegantly designed with business professionals in mind who are constantly on-the-go and taking work calls. By launching with two different models, we’re ensuring that all consumers’ preferences are met, whether they prefer the comfort of over-ear cushions or the ease and minimalism provided by true wireless in-ear buds.”
